Post-Marriage Game Playing

There are several regional variations to this ceremony. 

Aeki-Beki

The above in typical in a Gujarati marriage.  In the groom’s house a game called aeki-beki is played, by placing a ring and several coins in a tray of water which is colored by vermilion and milk. It is said that the person who finds the ring four times, will rule the house.

Talambra

In many South Indian marriages the rice mixed with the turmeric is poured over the heads of groom and bride by bride and groom. After this there are ceremonies of name calling singing and other games  aimed at the bringing the bride and the groom closer.
